The most decorated footballer in modern Tasmanian State League history has announced his retirement. 

Glenorchy star Jaye Bowden will hang up the boots following Sunday afternoon's TSL clash against local rivals the Demons at North Hobart Oval.

The 31-year-old bows out with a record six club best and fairest awards, three premierships, three Alastair Lynch medals (the league's best player), three Hudson medals (leading goalkicker) and nine TSL Team of the Year appearances.

Last year, Bowden became the first player inducted into the Magpies' Hall of Fame while still playing.

Amassing 243 games for Glenorchy, Bowden is the only Pie to kick over 500 goals (547) - aside from legend Peter Hudson.

First bounce for North Hobart verses Glenorchy on Sunday is at 2pm.

In timely news for those seeking to farewell the competition great, up to 1000 fans will be allowed into the ground as per the state government's easing of coronavirus restrictions.
